I made some time on Tuesday to cut the final borders. DH was home due to the snow, he came into the sewing room whilst I measured and cut the border fabric. Big mistake. I cut it seriously too short so the grandiose plans for the border have gone out the window and this simpler version will have to do.
Can you see, I've marked the quilting parallel lines for the border. It makes sense to do this before the swags get appliquéd in place as the border lies flat.
